Skyline High School senior Michelle Hastings has been awarded a $1,300 Cliff Marshall Sr. Memorial Scholarship from the Tennessee Grocers Education Foundation.
She is employed by Ragland Brothers, a TGCSA member, and was nominated by her supervisor for the scholarship.
Hastings has worked at Stop to Save for almost two years. The Tennessee Grocers Education Foundation awarded 113 scholarships this year valued at $122,900. Michelle is excited to be one of the scholarship recipients.
“We are so proud of Michelle and all of our scholarship recipients,” said Rob Ikard, TGCSA President. “These awards represent an investment in what makes Tennessee’s food industry work: its people.”
Hastings graduates this year from Skyline High School and plans to attend Northeast Alabama Community College where she will major in criminal justice. Her future plans include becoming a police officer and attending the Police Academy.
During her years at Skyline, Hastings has been active in FCCLA (Family, Career, and Community Leaders of America). This year she has served as president. Prior to that, Hastings was the parliamentarian for three years. She has also been a member of FFA (Future Farmers of America).
This busy teen is active in her community and has over 30 community service hours. When she has any free time, Hastings says she enjoys hanging out with her friends and family.
She is the daughter of Danny and Cindy Hastings and the granddaughter of James Hastings.
